Looking at the fact that there were two years of gap between the first and the second season fans might have to wait again for the third season to drop-in.
There's something spellbinding about sci-fi dramas that hook us up with its storyline for the longest of time. This genre of movies and dramas are loved by fans because they look ahead to the imminent 21st century that holds a sci-fi future, which is why they love the Netflix Original 'OA'. Created by Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, fans have been loyal to the show as they waited over two years for the release of the second season. But now, they want to know whether they should wait again for the third season. Here's everything we know about the birth of the show's third installment!
Netflix hasn't confirmed it officially about the existence of the third season yet, however, in an interview with Indiewire, Cindy Holland, who is Netflix's Vice President of Original Series confirmed that the story is looking forward for a five-season arc. It is believed that the creator of the series, Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij had originally pitched the five season plan to Netflix while they were in talks with the streaming giant to produce. Having said that, fans can expect another three seasons of The 'OA' if only they are not asked to abridge the storyline for any reason at all.
Jason Isaacs (Hunter Aloysius/ Dr. Percy) already spoke about the third season being under development in terms of its writing. In conversation with RadioTimes.com Isaacs said, "They’ve got all five seasons mapped out in their head. They did before they started. And that’s one of the reasons, I think, why the show was originally picked up by Netflix. Because they arrived with this thing that was fully-formed. It’s their singular voices. It doesn’t bear the stamp of any kind of executive development.”
He added: “I’m so invested in seeing it as a fan that I hope to god that people like the show as much as I do because we’d like to get a season three, four and five.” Having said that, there is no point in being greedy for the show that already had a fully-formed story waiting for us! All we can do is, wait patiently!
Making a sci-fi project extraordinary does take time and patience. Looking at the fact that there were two years of gap between the first and the second season fans might have to wait again for the third season to drop-in. But, they might not have to wait as long as they waited for the former season to happen as Isaacs hinted that the show's production will speed up in future. “I don’t think it’ll be as long as the [season 2 wait]," He said. Earlier, before the second season dropped-in, Marling explained the long production times, “Our chapters vary in length, scope, and even genre,” she said. “There is no pattern. As a result, at every step along the way nothing can be imitated, it has to be invented.”
We can expect nothing but to see the third installment getting STRANGER! The production team and the cast are definite about the fact that fans will be left startled by the third storyline. According to Ben-Adir “I know where it’s going in the next season, which is NUTS! Like, unimaginable! Genuinely! Like, not even in a way I’m trying to sell it – It’s crazy!” he said. “You think it goes there, but then it goes [starts pointing frantically] there and there and then there!” Isaacs added: "Everybody will be rewarded by the time we reach the end of the journey."
Even though we haven't heard anything official from the cast, we can hope to see Marling make a return as Prairie. Also, going with what Ben-Adir and Isaac commented, we can expect them to be there in the third installment.
